Hollywood funnyman Jim Carrey has an embarrassing secret - he was once beaten up by a girl.

As a youngster attending BLESSED TRINITY SCHOOL in his native Toronto, Canada, the BRUCE ALMIGHTY star admits he was a bit of a wimp - which proved to be a humiliating experience when he got on the wrong side of the female school bully.

He recalls, "She was like two feet taller than everyone else, and she would always pick some guy out and just start taking him apart.

"I always thought it was funny until one day I wound up in front of her with a bloody nose. I was swinging for the fences and I couldn't even reach her!"
